Why can’t an urgent care cover South Mass, Southbridge, Dudley and Webster…. It would not be feasible to have to travel so far for help.

You can visit any of our ReadyMED locations with your insurance, including the one in Auburn. We do not have an urgent care facility in Oxford. It sounds like the Oxford urgent care you are visiting doesn’t take your insurance, but all of Reliant Medical Group does. If you have any further questions please contact your insurance company. Thanks!

If you have a non-emergent issue and would like to visit ReadyMED, their number is (508) 595-2700. Or you can always call your primary care provider for advice on the best place to go.

Enroute to get medical care from the accident area, my husband and I were unable to find an active phone number for emergencies when using our cell phones. What number can I enter into my contacts for medical emergencies that require ReadyMED or an ER visit referral or recommendation?

10 miles.
They said I wasn,t covered for them because the bottom on my tuff,s care
Had a green stripe on it.
Is this correct.

ReadyMED doesn’t carry vaccines. You would need to get any vaccines from your primary care provider.
